Alfred J. Clements (1858-1938) was the organiser and secretary of the South Place Sunday Concerts (predecessor of Conway Hall Sunday Concerts) from their inception in 1887 until his death.  In the first half of the twentieth century the competition bearing his name encouraged the composition of new chamber works, establishing a tradition which set Conway Hall right at the centre of British contemporary music.

After the disaster wrought on the music industry by the coronavirus in 2020, Conway Hall Sunday Concerts is keen to support young musicians and new music in whatever way possible.  2021 sees the re-launch of The Clements Prize, which will call for new compositions for string trio.

Alongside the competition, scores submitted for previous editions from the Conway Hall Archive will be available for the first time via the Conway Hall website and a selection exhibited before the final round of the competition.  We are grateful to Cockayne – Grants for the Arts and to The London Community Foundation for making this exciting event possible.

Tickets give access to the final round performance by members of the Piatti Quartet (including Joseph Phibb‘s Quartet No. 1, played while the Jury deliberates)  and to the exhibition of scores in the Conway Hall Library.

Tickets: £10
